Our team (team Road Runner) had a blast- they were an all new rookie team- so our expectations were to check it all out- I agree- all was very well run- thank you to everyone involved at Maggie Walker. because our team switched robots and plans multiple times- and we were a new team- we only had two missions completed prior- they were able to make both happen at the table, so they were happy- we had better consistency at school. I think they all want to do it again next year. I was proud of our team for their first go round- and it was really fun to watch all the teams! Did anyone do the bridge? I never saw it? Laura Dysart:) Have fun for those teams next weekend!! Are there any classes or groups to help new coaches learn some of the more advanced programming- not to "tell the kids" what to do- but to have the knowledge to ask the questions and guide them. Our programs were very basic- which again, I think fine for a first year team- they had a fun attachment. The tutorials helped me only so much. I'd like to definitely line up a mentor and another coach for our team next year in advance. My team would like to keep meeting to play around with the programming and the robot.
